Michel Bastos is expected to remain with Lyon in the New Year despite attracting interest from Italy.

The Brazilian winger is understood to be a transfer target for AC Milan after a bright start to his career at Stade Gerland.

However, his representative Duro Ivanisevic insists there is no chance of a January move as he only joined Lyon from Lille in July.

Bastos has no desire to start afresh at this stage of the season as he looks to secure a place in Dunga's squad for the World Cup.

"I can confirm that Michel is followed by several top European clubs, also Italian," Ivanisevic told

"However it is impossible that he leaves Lyon in January. He arrived last summer and he's happy at Lyon.

"There is a Champions League to play and then he hopes to go to the World Cup with Brazil.

"This is no time to think about these things."
